This document specifies a laboratory test procedure for determining the electrical resistance, in wet conditions, between the running rails provided by a fastening system fitted to a steel or concrete sleeper, bearer or element of ballastless track. It is also applicable to embedded rail. This test procedure applies to a complete fastening assembly. It is relevant to signalling currents, not to traction currents. A reference procedure and an alternative procedure are included.

This document specifies a test procedure to confirm that the force necessary to pull the anchorage of a rail fastening assembly out of the sleeper or other supporting element is greater than a prescribed value (i.e. it is a "proof load" test). This test is for components of the fastening system which are: a) cast into concrete during the manufacture of sleepers or other supporting elements; b) glued into the cast or drilled holes in concrete; or c) screwed or otherwise attached to wood, polymeric composite or steel sleepers or other supporting elements. This test is not applicable to embedded rails.

This document specifies the laboratory test procedure to determine: a) the maximum longitudinal force that can be applied to a rail, secured to a sleeper, bearer or element of ballastless track by a rail fastening assembly, without non-elastic displacement of the rail occurring, or the longitudinal stiffness at a specified longitudinal displacement of a specimen of embedded rail with an adhesive fastening system, and for any type of fastening; b) the shear displacement and slip data required for track-bridge interaction calculations.

This document specifies a laboratory test procedure for finding the effect of exposure to severe environmental conditions on the fastening system. This test procedure applies to a complete fastening assembly including embedded rail with mechanical fastenings. It is not applicable to embedded rail systems relying on adhesive components to secure the rail.

This document specifies the terms and definitions used in the ISO 22074 series of standards related to rail fastening systems. NOTE In this document, there are some entries where more than one term is listed in the header (e.g. sleeper, tie, cross tie in 3.2.3). In such cases, the first term is the preferred term, generally used in the ISO 22074 series of standards. The other terms are also in common use in the railway industry and are considered to be synonymous (admitted terms).

ISO 12856-1:2014 specifies the characteristics of plastic and reinforced plastic materials to be used in the manufacturing of railway sleepers. It is applicable to the sleepers and parts of sleepers to be installed in tracks with or without ballast. Examples of different types of plastic and reinforced sleepers are given in an annex.
